Flowers That Represent Patriotism

Elevate your Independence Day celebration with patriotic flowers! Whether you’re hosting your own party or attending one, add some color and flair with flowers that are perfectly patriotic and pretty. Besides the traditional colors of red, white, and blue, there are specific blooms that also carry significant meaning and symbolism for honoring the most defining moments that have shaped our nation’s history.

Why Red, White, and Blue Are the Patriotic Colors of America

Red, white, and blue were the colors of the American flag when it was officially adopted in 1777. These colors and their significance trace back to the birth of this country and their meaning was explained in 1782: “White signifies purity and innocence. Red, hardiness and valor, and Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.”

Flowers that Symbolize Patriotism

Red Rose

The iconic red rose is the most recognized flower in the world, and its red color is symbolic of the red color in the American flag. It also happens to be the National Flower of the United States. Promoted by Senator Heflin in 1986, he wrote of the rose:

“…the rose is universal, Its support has a strong voice, So there should be no question That the rose is the choice. So let us raise our voices, And proclaim with all our power, That the rose is more than beautiful, It is America’s flower.”


The word “pansy” comes from the French word “pensee,” which means “to think,” “reflect upon,” or “ponder.” Representing thoughtfulness and remembrance, pansies are used for remembering those who have fought for our country.

Red Poppies

A striking and popular wildflower, red poppies symbolize memory, death, and consolation. They have long been regarded as a symbol of remembrance for fallen soldiers. Usually worn or displayed on Memorial Day, red poppies fit in with any patriotic holiday.


Nasturtium is a brightly colored flower that blooms in red, orange, and yellow. This bloom is commonly associated with patriotism, conquest, and victory in war. It also symbolizes love, loyalty, and strength.


Fragrant and charming, freesias symbolize freedom. A bloom with flowy, delicate petals, freesias are great cut flowers because they have a long vase life. Include them with other patriotic blooms or pass them out to guests as a beautiful and patriotic party favor.


These charming star-shaped flowers fit perfectly with any patriotic theme as they resemble the white stars on the American flag. Edelweiss blooms also symbolize strength and courage.

Guernsey Lilies

Also known as Nerine Lilies, their long petals that curve outward look like a firework display when bunched together. Guernsey Lilies symbolize freedom and good fortune and bloom in pink, red, and white colors.

Blue Iris

Not only is their blue color appropriate for a patriotic arrangement, but Blue Irises also symbolize hope, faith, and courage. Pair them with red roses and white daisies for a striking, red, white, and blue display.

How to Show Patriotism With Flowers

  • Use red, white, and blue flowers in hanging planters or containers to decorate your front porch, or bring an arrangement inside to add a pop of color and patriotism to your home.
  • Order a patriotic arrangement and send to someone who is, or was, in the military in thanks for their service.
  • Surprise veterans at your local VFW by gifting them flowers, hand out patriotic blooms to attendees of a parade or 4th of July celebration, or place them on the graves of those who have served our country.
  • Finally, make it a point to shop local and get your flowers from your neighborhood florist. Supporting locally-owned businesses and putting money back into your community is one of the most patriotic things you can do.
